#### Utilizing a portion of data in SUMPRODUCT

```Based on prior input from the group, I am using the following formula:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(Log!B3:B80=1997),--(Log!E3:E80=17))

The data in Column B is actually a full date, entered yyyy/mm/dd.  With the
data in this format, I get a formula result of 0.  If I eliminate the /mm/dd,
I get the correct result of 1.  I have tried the formula with and without
quotes around the Condition.

The person for whom I am creating this spreadsheet has asked that the date
be kept together, rather than separating out the year.  Is there some way I
can maintain the data in Column B and change the formula to get the correct
result?

```

Try using a YEAR() for the 1st condition:

=SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR(Log!B3:B80)=1997),--(Log!E3:E80=17))

Try to stay within the same thread for easier follow-up. Noted you've posted
a couple of queries (which seem related) and received good responses from
others, but you've yet to *reply* to any of these responses given. (You
could find / click on the "reply" button in the web interface)

```Thanks for the feedback, Helen

Trust you've got it sorted out by now with Bob's help

> =SUMPRODUCT(--(YEAR(Log!B3:B80)=1997),--(Log!E3:E80=17))

> I've tried the change you suggested -- adding YEAR
> -- and end up with a result of #VALUE! ..

Think some/all of the data in Log!B3:B80
may not be real dates/numbers
(dates are actually numbers in Excel)

(All it needs is a single cell in B3:B80 which
is not a real date, and you'll get #VALUE! <g>)

Try this quick check in the sheet Log
in an empty col to the right

Put a label into G2: Check (say)

Put in G3: =ISNUMBER(B3+0)
Copy down to G80

[G3:G80 should evaluate to TRUE
for real dates/numbers]

Select G2:G80
Do a Data > Filter > Autofilter on the range
Click on FALSE in the droplist in G2 to filter these out
Look at what's in col B and try re-entering the date(s)

```Hi Max,

You will not be surprised to hear that the problem was with the data, some
of the fields had two dates in them, therefore the YEAR function errored on
what was actually a string field.

We changed the formula to SUM(IF(... to handle the errors, and it seems okay
now.

Regards

Bob
